Prince Charles avoids talk of monarchy plans over fear of upsetting the Queen
A royal biographer says Prince Charles' plans to slimline the monarchy are on hold because he will not bring them up with the Queen.
Angela Levin, who has spent time with a number of royals, including Prince Harry, says the Prince of Wales worries discussing plans for the future means he is "wanting her to die" which he does not.
There has been speculation that Prince Charles is looking to ditch some royal members to reduce the size of the family when he becomes King.
It has been long thought that Prince Charles believes the monarchy should be cut down to save costs and give more value to the taxpayer.
Speaking to Tortoise in its weekly ThinkIn, Levin said: "One reason you can't [know about his plans] is that Prince Charles has loads of plans for changing the monarchy but he doesn't want to upset the Queen.
"She's used to things going on for decades and he feels that if he starts talking about it he is wanting her to die, which he does not.
"He's kept a lot of it back because she is happy with things as they are, they have been the same for a very long time."

The Royal Family have been accused by some quarters burdening the taxpayer, with some people even calling for the end of the monarchy altogether.
The CEO of Republic, a political organisation that wishes to replace the monarchy, believes Charles needs to "wean" some members off the public purse.
Graham Smith said: "I think that what is going to happen is that when the Queen is gone, it will just be Charles, William and their spouses.
"The others will still be there in the background, to what extent Charles will be able to wean the others of public subsidy, we will have to wait and see."
